Thanks for the help. I am trying to complete my records on the family of John Tower and Orenda O'Brien,Walter would have been their grandson. These families appear on the 1901 census for Albert Co.,listed under Hillsborough Parish. Could you supply the birth date and place of burial for Dorothy and her mother. I have bits and pieces of information on the rest  of the family and would be happy to share if anyone is interested.

I was the second husband of Dorothy Tower, the only offspring of Walter Tower and Sadie Cole Tower.  Dorothy died in Mar. 2001.  She was divorced from Harold Fisher. Dorothy and Harold had three daughters now living in the area; Betty Mac Donald , Springhill.  Shirley Thomas and Linda Goguen of Moncton. John and Fannie Lewis were formerly of Turtle Creek, N.B. They may have lived in Amherst area but with the exception of Walter the whole family emigrated to Worcester Mass John and Fannie Lewis Tower had five boys; Walter, George, Charles, John, Arthur and three daughters;  Winnie Tower Singer, Lillian  Tower Billings and Jennie Tower Eckers. Later on Winnie and  Lillian  moved  to Milwaukee, Wisconsin . I keep in contact via e-mail with  Dora  Tower Bard , Arthur's daughter who lives in North Brookfield, Mass. a short drive from Worcester.
